Christie Brinkley's Triumphant Return to the Beach

And, yes, it’s something to behold.

It may be over three decades since she drove a cherry red Ferrari directly into our hearts, but Christie Brinkley, at age 63, is proving that age really is just a number. (Or that people everywhere should seriously consider investing in a Chuck Norris Total Gym.)

Today, Brinkley caused something of a social media frenzy when it was revealed that the former swimsuit model is officially becoming the Michael Jordan of supermodels, and coming out of retirement to to appear in Sports Illustrated's annual swimsuit issue for the first time in years—and she's looking, well, have a look for yourself:

"My first thought was, 'At my age? No way!'" she told People, about the shoot.

We're glad someone changed her mind.
